Thomas Horst dará esta lecture virtual, a que poderão assistir por Zoom, na Washington Map Society, a 30 de novembro, sob o tema "The Amazing (Hi-)Story of the Bavarian Army Library Map Collection – Reconstructed 60 Years After Its Restitution to Germany".
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the restitution of the Bavarian Army Library to Germany, this paper reconstructs the amazing story of one of the largest collections of military books and maps, that survived destruction during World War II and was taken by American soldiers in 1946 to the US, where it was stored in the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. for more than a decade, until its restoration to Germany in 1962. Dr. Horst will shed new light on the history of this special collection (going back to the beginning of the nineteenth century) and its diverse provenances. He will also present exemplarily (manuscript) maps that are currently dispersed in different Bavarian institutions.
